    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    I would think so, quite a lot of people selling 10/15 so just clear up lots that I’m never keen on.

    Skipton mule gimmer lambs averaged £88 today, I didn’t go but probably should have now.

    complicated toxo question

    I do my yearlings for my own sheep that are wintered on beet around the edge of a big town (20k people ish) I always worry that there might be a load of cat sh!t out there. I have another flock that I don’t toxo but do Enzo because we have had a problem in the past. But should prob do both for...

    complicated toxo question

    £6 my vet told me the other day when I bought 200 doses. But we haven’t got many large animal vets and don’t think I was much cheaper online after the proscription, postage and risk of it getting warm.

    Someone was telling me the other day that his 33-36 month old cattle made £950 when he killed them! He bought 30 almost 3 years ago as calves and managed to sell only 24, so they had 2 full winters. He said that he was happy because they hadn’t cost much, some people are easy pleased. He is the...

    Mv accreditation

    Far more common than everyone thinks imo. You see a lot of very poor ewes in the culls that I would bet have it. Tell tale sign is dragging there back leg. I’m not an expert in any way but doesn’t it effect all soft Tissue, brain, muscles and udder?

    I love a fast auction. I sold some yearlings local a couple of weeks ago, sale started at 11 and we where done and away by 12, I think there where 1500 sheep in big lots (mine where in 40’s) but buyers could take a cut. It makes a real bidding frenzy when they are flying in big lots because...

    Quadruplicate Sheep Movement Forms

    How do they know it’s 50%? I bet the people who come up with that figure have never moved sheep in there lives (I’m not saying if I think it’s more or less 😂)

    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    I'm continuing my tour of UK markets. There is so good lamb up there, they seem to like Suffolk cross cheviots that look strong to me, they are about £10 head less than down here so about the same by the time you get them home. My highlight though was someone with 12 pure Shetland lambs sold in...

    The further north you go the more singles they seem to sell. I went to Shetland store lambs sale (just for a look 🤔) on Friday and 100’s of lambs sold as singles!

    Once Bred Ewe Lambs

    I would think you would be much better lambing broken mouth ewes, take one lamb off and let her tear the other with no creep, then kill the ewe at weaning. If your ground is good enough for a Hogg to rear a lamb then be able to killer her I would think brokers would be a better option.

    Ram costs

    That’s a common one with gimmer lambs as well. People don’t start bidding until it hits £100. Many people don’t follow there own judgement. I bought a tup I wanted for £370 the other week, I would have happy paid £700 for him because he was right for my job. Next one in the ring (not as good)...

    Ram costs

    Buy the tup I want not the price (upto £1000). Tups are bloody cheap really, and you will know if you have bought good tups when people keep asking where you get them from when selling lambs.

    Life after cows

    Sell up and spend the money on fast women, slow horses and booze, then waste the rest. 😂 have the life you couldn’t have by milking cows and go out in a blaze of glory! That’s what I would do any way, f**k giving it to the NT to plant trees on then sell the best off to fund ‘research’ trips.
